An evening to remember

I know it sounds cliche, but "it's a small world" . Thanks a lot to Bala for inviting me to the Deepavali get-together at his home. I hardly know Bala. Bala apparently reads my blog regularly and recently moved from U.K to Singapore. we had been planning to meet in person and diwali gave us a chance for that.

A big surprise was awaiting me there. Bala's bro-in-law turned out to be my lecturer during college days at SVCE ( Venkateswara college of engg,Chennai).He was also a family friend having lived in the same street as my mom's family in Katpadi near Vellore (TN). Also happened to meet Joslin,a fellow blogger (http://spaces.msn.com/members/topoftheword/) and ex-colleague of Bala .He works for Cisco and knew most of my co-students who are interning there. Another interesting person whom I met was Christian, an Irish research scientist , who knows a lot about tamil movies !

The topics discussed ranged from neuroscience to illayaraja's oratorio to tamil movie scene to IP telephony and outsourcing . I had an absolutely fabulous time and as I said earlier " It's a small world".
